News: nCode lands Liebherr-Aerospace deal


HBM nCode, the leading brand of fatigue and durability software which based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham, has secured a deal with Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, one of Europe's leading manufacturers of air management systems for aircraft.

With reports showing that 50-90% of all structural failures are due to fatigue failure, HBM nCode supplies leading names including General Motors, Chrysler, Bombardier and Lockheed Martin with technology and software products for durability and performance analyses.

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS produces aviation equipment including flight control and actuation systems, landing gear and air management systems as well as gearboxes for civil and military sectors.

nCode Automation has been selected by Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS as their preferred tool for performing robust and automated analyses. The company's next generation R&D facilities in France enable them to run full-scale tests, simulating conditions with air pressure sources and temperatures ranging from 0.1 to 40 bar abs and from -60° to +700°C.

Combining automated data storage, analysis and reporting, the software applies some of the same concepts used in business intelligence to engineering data, enabling data to be processed for trends and identifying relationships that can be used to make better decisions.

Julien André from the Development Testing Service at Liebherr-Aerospace, said: "Our challenge was to find a solution that addressed the analysis needs of our different service sectors and did not require programming knowledge. nCode Automation, with its user-friendly interface, allows the five sectors of our Developmental Testing Services to collaborate and analyse the constant stream of data generated by the 28 test cells at our test centre."

With this software adoption, HBM-nCode and Liebherr-Aerospace are continuing and strengthening their technical partnership. In addition to nCode Automation, Liebherr-Aerospace has also been a long-time user of nCode DesignLife for simulating the life of their equipment to ensure sustainability and nCode GlyphWorks for robust analysis of their test data.

Steve Tudberry, CEO at HBM nCode, said: "We are pleased that Liebherr-Aerospace has expanded their use of nCode software to support the development and maintenance of their equipment. This new implementation at Liebherr confirms our innovative and growing applications within the aerospace industry worldwide."

Shortly after moving from Sheffield onto the AMP, nCode was acquired by German company, HBM in 2008, in a deal thought to be worth around £20m. HBM is a wholly-owned subsidiary company of Spectris plc, a group specialised in precision instrumentation and electronic controls.
